Actor Danny Glover Blames Global Warming for Haiti Earthquake
Published: 1/16/2010 10:48 AM ET
Far-left actor Danny Glover, during an online interview this week, proposed global warming caused the devastating earthquake in Haiti. FNC caught up with the silliness Friday night, as Jim Angle led the "Grapevine" segment:
Actor Danny Glover says the earthquake in Haiti is a result of global warming. Glover told GRITtv that it could have happened to any of the Caribbean island nations, quote: "They are all in peril because of global warming." Then, he lamented the failure of the climate summit in Copenhagen. As a result of that failure, he says, "this is what happens."The ludicrous Glover quote in full, from the interview with the leftist GRITtv (conducted by phone from Seattle with Laura Flanders), which was posted on YouTube on Wednesday, the 13th:
I hope we seize this particular moment because the threat of what happened to Haiti is the threat that could happen anywhere in the Caribbean to these island nations, you know. They're all in peril because of global warming, they're all in peril because of climate change and all of this....Audio: MP3 clip (30 seconds) Listen and see if you can figure out his point.
When we look back at what we did at the climate summit in Copenhagen, this is the response, this is what happens, you know what I'm saying? But we have to act now.
